Atkins Tomatillo Salsa
1.
Break out of your red salsa rut! This green salsa is tangy and slightly spicy and has a bit of crunch too. If you haven't experimented with tomatillo, a member of the tomato family that's particularly low in carbs, this is a good first recipe to try. Be sure to wear gloves and don't touch your eyes as (or after) you chop up and de-seed the jalapeno pepper.
2.
Mix tomatillos, onion, cilantro leaves, lime juice, olive oil, jalapeno, salt, and black pepper in a medium bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
